Japan: Decision Made


After waffling on where to go since May, I made a decision.

I am going to Japan with the tour operator  Inside Japan Tours.  I found this tour company by searching through the Japan forums on Fodor’s and TripAdvisor’s.

The small group tours are reasonably priced and unique.

Hands on Japan, is the tour I have chosen to take through them. The tour highlights and itinerary are below.

Tour Highlights

  • Visit the ukiyo-e woodblock print museum in Matsumoto
  • Try your hand at traditional Japanese crafts: paper making, pottery, cloth dyeing and more
  • See sumo and take a cruise to Hamarikyu Gardens in Tokyo
  • Visit a traditional machiya townhouse for lunch in Kyoto
  • Visit Zenko-ji Temple, one of Japan’s most important religious sites
  • Prepare your own soba noodles with an expert
